Presidential Office Building, Taipei
(3.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos. Use our Taipei family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Presidential Office Building and other attractions in Taipei.

  • 因是非假日關係,參觀是採3天前以傳真或至總統府網站辦理預約方式,沒有預先辦理所以只可望門輕嘆在府外拍照。但可在府外拍到歐洲文藝復興時期巴洛克式之建築特色也不失為過,希望下次有機會可進府內参觀臺灣最高權力中心。 
  • Like the Prime Minister's Office in Japan, so many police and security is tight. Also noted by security guards and try to take a photo. I think see appearance as a traditional building, is just too funny and isn't trying.

  • I don't know because haven't seen inside, but appearance is the so-called historic buildings to take pictures, is the end. I think it is not a place many times. To take pictures near the building and a guard warned.

  • This is president's office. It is an old building built in 1919 by Japanese. Sometime it will be open to public during weekend or holidays. Check its schedule on official website for more details. There are photo shoot platforms in front of the building. Go there and you will get a better photo. The building looks different when day and night, and I like it personally when lights on

  • Nice building, built by Japanese for their governor.
  • Thanks to president Ma, president Tsai, so that we can have a better Taiwan. I love you guys.
  • Historical site. A must-see.
